Membership

UPAL is a financial services and group purchasing cooperative owned by its members. UPAL is directed by an eleven-member physician board, elected from its membership with operations managed by a full-time professional staff.

UPAL offers three membership levels to both healthcare providers and non-healthcare organizations. For each membership level, there is a tax deductible, one-time fee which can be upgraded by paying only the difference between the applicable membership fees.
